The website uses cookies for various purposes, including saving user sessions and essential website functions and for Matomo analytics. The installation of technical cookies does not require prior consent. Users can manage cookie preferences through their browser settings, although disabling cookies may affect website functionality.

Files Processed by the MAUVE++ Application:

The MAUVE++ application offers the functionality to analyze HTML web pages and PDF documents to verify their accessibility. During this process, files are temporarily loaded into memory for the duration of the analysis.

It is important to understand the data retention policies regarding these documents:

  • For certain features, such as "Projects," HTML documents may be stored in memory until the user who created the project deletes the project itself. During this period, HTML documents remain accessible only to the user who created the project and are not stored beyond the necessary duration for managing the project.
  • In all other cases, including PDF document analysis, files remain in memory only for the duration of the analysis. Once the analysis is completed, documents are not stored or further processed by the MAUVE++ application.

Please note that regardless of the document type, the MAUVE++ application is committed to respecting users' privacy and ensuring that processed files are used solely for their intended purpose and are not stored or retained beyond necessity.

Use of the MAUVE++ application implies acceptance of this file processing practice as described in this Privacy and Cookie Policy.
